First Line Friday - January 12, 2018

I am so excited to talk about the book that my first line comes from today. I am LOVING it!!! I'm currently reading You'll think of Me by Robin Lee Hatcher and I don't want to put it down.



"Brooklyn Myers sat on the narrow stretch of lawn beside the brick apartment building, watching her ten-year-old daughter."

What's the first line of the book closest to you? Let me know in the comments and then head over to Hoarding Books to see who else is sharing first lines on their blogs today. 




I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Oh I really want to read that author!! I keep seeing her books and they are calling me!

    Happy Friday!

    My First Line Friday comes from a book I will be reading later this month, The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane....

    I was born twice. The first time was on July 9 to Paul and Mimi Haas in Cleveland, Ohio. My mother died six years later.


    Have a great weekend and stay warm!

  4. Love Robin Lee Hatcher. I used to live in Idaho and always enjoy going back through her books.

    I’ll share the first line from the next book on my TBR list: Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke: Lightning crackled, splitting the night sky over Paris, illuminating letters painted on the bookstore window across the street: La Maison des Amis des Livre.
